5th Annual Halloween Walk
Wednesday, October 30th    11:00am - 11:45am

Calling all ghosties and ghoulies, super heroes, and ballerinas!  Time to put on your costume and  join us here at the Library for a fun neighborhood Halloween Walk!

We will gather at 11:00 for a quick story and snack followed by a parade around the Library then head off to visit other town offices and establishments to show off our costumes and perhaps get a treat or two!

This activity takes place during the regular Preschool Story Time, but children of all ages are welcome to join us.

Third Thursday of the Month

6:00pm - 7:00pm

Monthly Lego building opportunity for children of all ages and abilities.

At each meeting, the children will be presented with a challenge for what to build with the Legos -- a bridge, a race car, something you might see in the sky, the tallest structure, time challenges, and more!
Or, you may just want to be creative on your own!
